Shropshire Youth Workshops
GRAIN have worked in collaboration with young people from across Shropshire, including Telford Young Carers, Shropshire Young Carers, XYZ and Steps Forward youth groups, to make photographs that document young people’s lives during a year like never before.
The young people took part in both online & in person workshops creating their own photography projects to tell the stories of how they live their lives, what it’s like to grow up in a rural area and their experiences of Covid – 19 and life in lockdown.
The resulting photographs offer a documentation of this historical time period and reveal the importance of family, friends and the outdoors to the young people.
The project was led by Stephen Burke, in partnership with The Hive, Shrewsbury, supported by Frosts Photo Centre and Arts Council England.
